A MeMe....

I was tagged by Nicole for the I love, I hate Meme.... here are mine:

"I love, I hate"

I love

I love MY family; my son and my husband
I love reading a fantastic book and feeling like I lost a good friend when I am finished
I love soaking in our hot tub, and feeling like I am in Hawaii when I am in our own back yard
I love when Jeff swats me on the behind in a caring way as he passes by
I love thunderstorms when we are all safe and sound at home
I love a good chick flick, with or without anyone watching with me
I love knowing Nash is learning each day, in an inclusive environment, with caring teachers and friends
I love my tri21 gals, who support, love and are there for each of us

I hate

I hate the word hate
I hate that Annette left us and her family and while she is at peace with it, I still am not
I hate that my side of the family is so disfunctional
I hate that I have such ambivalance about working vs staying at home
I hate that I never have peace with my body size

and I in turn choose Big Dawg and Kim to respond.
